The 2024 Honey Spirits Competition will take place in St. Louis, Missouri. Date is TBD. The judging will be closed to the public.
The Honey Spirits Competition medals will be awarded on a merit basis by a majority vote. Judges are asked to evaluate the spirits in silence until everyone on the panel has finished their evaluation. A moderator records the judges’ votes.
Spirits are presented to judges in a blind tasting format. Judging is absolutely anonymous; no spirits bottles are visible to the judges at any time until the competition is over. No judge may evaluate a product in which he/she has a stake or ownership. Judging is not based on personal preference, but by product quality and the use of honey in the spirit.
The judges’ decision is final and awards will not be changed after the judging is finished.
All entries will receive judges notes and all winners will receive a physical medal and a digital seal for use on packaging and promotional materials.
All entries will be judged for the design and packaging awards. There is no additional registration required.
